The Providence Performing Arts Center is an easy trip!
At present, because of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, our theater tours are on pause. In the meantime, Providence Performing Arts Center is working with the CDC and state officials to update, upgrade, and install safety features so that we can once again enjoy Broadway hits with confidence.
The United States’ top infectious disease expert, last month addressed a virtual conference of the Association of Performing Arts Professionals. Dr. Anthony S. Fauci emphasized that the timeline for re-opening hinged on the country reaching an effective level of herd immunity, which he defined as vaccinating from 70 percent to 85 percent of the population. “If everything goes right, this will occur some time in the fall of 2021, Dr. Fauci said, “so that by the time we get to the early to mid-fall, you can have people feeling safe performing onstage as well as people in the audience.”
If all goes well, Adventure Tours should be able to plan a December performance of Christmas with the Boston Pops. Date and time to be announced.
Everybody loves the theater, particularly when Adventure Tours of Warren hosts the theater party. And, you'll really like Providence Performing Arts Center, originally built as the Leow's Movie Palace.
On opening day at this theater, October 6, 1928, over 14,000 people came to hear the $90,000 Robert Morton organ accompanying the film, "Excess Baggage". But most people really showed up to see the magnificent decor with its sparkling gilding, lavish fabrics, coffered ceilings, columns of imported marble, and huge crystal chandeliers.
The Providence Performing Arts Center is completely restored to its former glory and is a fitting setting for the splendid Broadway productions that grace its calendar. Recently we've seen Jersey Boys, Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, West Side Story, Mary Poppins, White Christmas, Cabaret, Pippin, Memphis, Evita, Kinky Boots, Blue Man Group, Dirty Dancing, Bullets over Broadway, Wicked, Sister Act, War Horse, Cinderella, Wicked, Mamma Mia!, Book of Mormon, Lion King, Chicago, 42nd Street, King & I, The Bodyguard, On Your Feet!, Beautiful - The Carole King Musical, American in Paris, and Something Rotten . On our 2018-19 schedule are performances of Miss Saigon, Anastasia, Cats, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, Phantom of the Opera, and Jersey Boys. We hope you'll consider joining us for theater really soon. For best availability, remember to purchase your seats about 60 days prior to the performance
